I've been off to Google Scholar and have been quickly reminded why I
gave up previously. Here are some search results for SAS constrained
only by the year of publication==2009:

SAS - 7,510 but most of these are way off base. Not sure why we got such
different results.

"SAS" - 730 These are much better as the quotes eliminate spaces between
the letters. But included are all the papers on:

Sythetic Aperture Sonar
Simulating an Automated System
Swarm AlgorithS
Semi-Active Suspensions
San Andreas System
Supervisory Attentional Systems
Semi-Algebraic Systems...

"SAS Institute" - 221, many by people listing SAS Institute as their
employer!

Sigh.
